Udon Noodle Soup

I made a couple changes to this Poor Girl Eats Well recipe. It turned out delicious! A great soup if you're feeling a little under the weather, especially since it only takes about 15 minutes to make!

4 c stock
2 c water
1 pkg. udon noodles (my pkg had 3 servings) plus the seasoning packets
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 t ground ginger (I omitted this, but I'm not a big ginger fan)
1/2 t cayenne pepper (optional, add after cooking to taste)
1 T low-sodium soy sauce
1 c frozen shelled edamame
3/4 c sliced mushrooms
3/4 c red bell pepper strips
1/2 of a yellow onion, cut into strips
1 c cubed extra firm tofu
1/4 c chopped scallions

1. In a large soup pot add stock, water, udon seasoning, garlic, soy sauce, edamame, bell pepper & onion. Boil for 2-3 minutes.
2. Add udon, tofu, mushrooms and boil for 2-3 more minutes.
3. Stir scallions in & serve.

I tried finding udon noodles at the store today and couldn't spot them. Is there a more common substitute, or should I try an Asian market?

Sometimes they have them in the refrigerated section by the tofu, or dry noodles in the asian aisle. If not, any asian market will carry them.
